I have extensive information on the descendants of Timothy C. Lamberson and Martha "Belle" Elizabeth Mefford of Pike Co., MO. Actually I typed for about two hours in reply and accidentally deleted the whole thing! In any case, please contact me for more information.
However, I do not know anything about the previous generations or anything much of the origins of this family. I am sure I will post more information if you respond, but right now I am so despondent from deleting my work that I am presently disinclined to continue too far this evening.
